State clears Omaha school board in superintendent emails scandal

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Omaha school board's lawyer has been cleared of allegations about her handling of the scandal over explicit emails sent by the woman hired to be the district's next superintendent.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that Omaha school board President Freddie Gray, at Monday night's board meeting, shared the response from the Nebraska Supreme Court's Counsel for Discipline.

Former state Sen. Ernie Chambers had filed a grievance alleging negligence by attorney Elizabeth Eynon-Kokrda, saying she should have informed the entire board about emails sent on a district computer by Nancy Sebring before she left the Des Moines district for the Omaha post.

Eynon-Kokrda had conferred only with Gray. Gray and Eynon-Kokrda have said Sebring minimized what she'd done, so they didn't share the information with the board.
